Traditionally, early-career scientists and those with more novel approaches to their research face considerable difficulty securing funding for their work. This is partly due to the higher-risk nature of their work, while both established scientists and those pursuing proven methods of study are considered less risky to fund. New Vision Research alters the current landscape of funding by intentionally connecting and supporting early-career researchers with innovative ideas through CCAD.
A Way Forward is a four-part series dedicated to sharing these challenges with the CCAD community, along with ways to help address them and contribute to their resolution.
We believe diversity in ideas leads to better medical research, and to achieve this, it is important to identify and address individual, community and institutional challenges scientists face that hold us back as a community.

I am excited to share a brief update on my research since attending the Charleston Conferences on Alzheimer’s Disease (CCAD) in 2014. It is hard to capture the entire roller coaster ride of starting a research lab, so I will share a few highlights. Currently, I am an Associate Professor with appointments in the Department of Pharmacology & Chemical Biology and Neurology in the School of Medicine at Emory University…
